Training for Fun / Training to Win!
It is very important, before you start any agility training to first have good Agility Foundation Skills. This helps prevent injury by gradually developing your dogs skills which will be used to negotiate the equipment.
For dogs that can negotiate all the obstacles and put them together over a course, I offer 1 to 1 Agility training in Pelton, Chester Le Street, to work on specific issues or just to have an intensive training session with your dog. All equipment is rubber coated and competition standard. Please click here to fill in the contact us form to request this service.
I offer 1 to 1 Agility Foundation Training for dogs new to agility for all ages from puppy to the older dog. During these sessions some of the many skills you will cover are:-

- Impulse control
- Proprioception and body awareness skills
- Start line behaviour
- Shadow handling
- Contact training (Stoped and Running)
- Foundation handling drills
- Intro to weave (Push Pull, Channel and Two by Two methods)
All new dogs wishing to join our class must do a foundation session first in which I will assess the dogs ability and fitness level. Please click here to fill in the contact us form to request this service.
